What are anti-wrinkle injections?

 

Anti-wrinkle injections are a popular aesthetic treatment used to significantly reduce the movement of the muscles causing expression lines (dynamic lines) in particular, the frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead expression lines.

Anti-wrinkle injections are a prescribed drug called Botulinum toxin.  Botulinum toxin can only be prescribed during a face-to-face consultation by a qualified medical practitioner with a prescribing qualification.
